    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Hockessin

    Hockessin, located on the border of Pennsylvania and Delaware, is a suburb of Wilmington. The town's unusual name comes from a Native American word meaning "good bark." The town of 13,527 people has a sizeable senior population, with over one-fifth of residents being 65 years of age or older. To serve these senior residents, three assisted living facilities are located in Hockessin, and another 23 are in Wilmington and other nearby communities.

    Delaware’s assisted living facilities are licensed by the Division of Health Care Quality. Seniors who live in licensed facilities receive supervision, personalized assistance and other necessary services.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Hockessin

    • Delaware Area Regional Transit (DART) operates a bus service that connects Hockessin to the rest of the state. Discounted DART fares are available to seniors who complete an application. A curb-to-curb paratransit service is available for seniors with disabilities.
    • Hockessin seniors can take advantage of Delaware’s favorable tax policies. Social Security benefits are exempt from state income tax, as is the first $12,500 of pension income. Delaware is one of the few states that doesn’t charge a sales tax, letting seniors keep even more of their money.
    • Hockessin offers limited arts and culture opportunities, but seniors can visit the Tweed’s Tavern Museum to learn about the town’s history. Many more activities and attractions are available in Wilmington, such as Broadway shows, baseball games and scenic gardens.
    • The Hockessin area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Wilmington.
    • The crime rate in Hockessin is very low, and the town is safer than 58 percent of communities in the U.S. The risk of being a victim of a violent crime is only 1 in 1,388 in Hockessin, which is significantly lower than the Delaware average.
    • While the state has a higher cost of living than the U.S. average, Hockessin is expensive even by Delaware standards. The town’s cost of living is a whopping 43.1 percent higher than the national average.
